5 Benefits of Using the Microsoft Outlook Desktop Email Client

Microsoft Outlook is one of the most widely used email applications in the world. Whether you use it at home for personal correspondence or at work for professional communication, there are several distinct benefits of choosing the Microsoft Outlook desktop email client to manage email more efficiently. Here are five to consider.

1.      Access Messages in An Organized Environment

Outlook utilizes a folder system that enables efficient message organization. You can easily access each message and any accompanying attachments all in one place. Likewise, tasks such as sending messages and attaching files can also be accomplished in an organized fashion.

2.      Use Keyboard Commands to Quickly Perform Tasks

Keyboard commands simplify the processes of sending, replying to, and forwarding messages as well as navigating the inbox and other folders. No need to laboriously search through links to find what you’re looking for when you can perform a specific task by executing a keystroke.

3.      Manage Contacts

The Outlook desktop email client allows you to manage contacts through simple navigation and keyboard commands. Easily access the address book and find important contacts when you need to send messages or meeting requests.

4.      Access Calendar Features

The Outlook calendar provides an efficient means of creating appointments and multiple ways of viewing your schedule. Quickly send meeting requests to contacts and use the month, week, or day views to access upcoming appointments. The same keyboard commands you use to read and create emails are also available for performing similar tasks in the calendar.

5.      Outlook Is Commonly Used in the Workplace

Companies in a variety of industries are choosing Outlook as their email client because of its robust features and capabilities. Becoming familiar with this application can contribute to employability and increase productivity in the workplace.
